quantum dots

Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic, announces the opening of a 1+1-year position for a post-doctoral researcher in quantum communication theory with quantum dot sources within an EU-funded project in the quantum communication team led by Dr. Vladyslav Usenko within the quantum optics theory group of Prof. Radim Filip. The research will primarily focus on novel quantum key distribution protocols using entangled states with suppressed multi-photon contribution in quantum networks and include international experimental-theoretical collaboration.

Two postdoctoral fellowships and two PhD student positions are available in the Baugh group at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), University of Waterloo. We anticipate 2-year postdoctoral appointments, with the possibility of a 3rd year, contingent on performance and funding. These appointments may begin as early as September 2017. Excellent candidates are sought with an experimental background in semiconductor devices, nano- and micro-fabrication, and cryogenic transport measurements.

The position involves analytical and computational modelling of laser excitation of semiconductor quantum dots and other systems, devising schemes for the erasure of information stored in those systems, and extending the thermodynamical framework to incorporate the erasure schemes. The ideal candidate will have a strong track record in computational quantum physics preferably with a background in semiconductor quantum dot systems (or similar area of condensed matter physics).
